Barely a vampire novel. VERY dry and slow and plodding. Really has very little point and I only finished it out of some desperation it would get better. It didn't.

The book is actually from 1988 and is being republished with a snazzy new cover. But it's really outdated and they're just trying to cash in on the vampire popularity right now. But what kind of vampire is not a single bit stronger or faster then a normal person, can go out in the sun and has to use a knife to cut for blood?

Also, the author must have some weird fascination with anal sex as the entire book is centered around it. Right from the beginning, we're told the theory that vampires make other vampires by butt sex. Okay...1980's AIDS commentary perhaps?

Anyway, it's really not very good at all. Took me ten agonizing days to finish it.
